The Casamance region in southern Senegal is one of the last areas in Western Africa that still supports a large number of traditional fishermen, carriers, processors and migrant workers. From here, fish is transported to the surrounding countries – making the area essential for both food security and the regional economy. GOLDEN FISH, AFRICAN FISH is a fascinating and insightful documentary about the future of this increasingly rare approach to fishing, and its impact on worker’s health and community.
